The Sor Studies is a professional, fully featured multimedia music program containing superb professional classical guitar performances of Fernando Sor's celebrated studies for guitar (Opus numbers 6, 29, 31, 35, 44, and 60, complete). We've recorded live, complete performances by a top classical guitarist - many with full-motion closeup videos - bringing new technology to classic masterpieces.

An Invaluable Learning Resource!

This definitive collection of studies for the classical guitar is an essential learning resource. It is accorded the same significance in the study of the guitar as that given to Bach's Well Tempered Clavier in the study of the piano. All performances are taken from the earliest available facsimiles of the music - the VOB collection. PG Music's innovative multimedia presentation of the material adds exciting dimensions to the study and appreciation of Sor's timeless works.

The notation scrolls by in sync with the audio and video recordings, with a highlight box to indicate the current measure.
